Hi there....

Here are a few ideas:

1) Make it a web service call.

2) Depending on the security needed, a stored procedure (SQL) call might
also work.

3) Use a "remote command" tool. There's one in IBM i Access, plus the
RExec protocol is available. (These should only be used in a very
trusted environment.)

4) The SSH tool is available (and much more secure) and can be used for
remote commands.

5) The FTP server has a remote command capability. (Again, I'd be
careful about this due to security implications.)

There are probably other ways, too.
